The California Medical Association, California Hospital Association, Texas Medical Association, and Texas Hospital Association are hosting a webinar on Sept. 28 at 12:15-1:15 p.m. (PT) about the new federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program rules, which expand eligibility for California and Texas physicians. It will also discuss how hospitals, foundations, and other entities can become “qualifying employers” for purposes of PSLF, even though they are prohibited by state law from employing physicians. 

The webinar will provide specific instructions about how more California and Texas physicians can qualify for PSLF.  

In addition, the U.S. Department of Education will provide information about eligible qualifying loans and the new eligibility criteria. There will also be a legal presentation about the types of practices that qualify, the required written agreements between physicians and nonprofit entities, and suggestions for documenting the required work hours as well as time for your questions.
